Annet owns a stall in Kisaasi market selling Irish potatoes. In addition to this business, she is a part-time teacher in a nearby primary school. Annet has been in business for two years. She sells to all categories of people on wholesale. She wants to use her loan to buy more bags of Irish potatoes. She buys bags of potatoes from Kasese district and uses public transport to and from Kasese. She works seven days a week and depends on this job for a living. Her business challenges include transportation and defaulters.
Annet's aspiration is to see her business grow bigger and to make enough profits to buy a delivery van. She decided to join Kiva partner, MCDT SACCO, because it brings services nearer to her.
Annet is married with one child who is not yet in school. She doesn’t take care of additional family members. She lives in and owns a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.
